Dermatology and glycolic peel

How long after a glycolic acid peel do I wait until I can use a .5mm derma roller. And if I could combine the two, do I derma roll first then glycolic peel or vice versa?

3-4 days after peel- never combine.

You can roll as early as 2 days, but without knowing your skin's history (everyone reacts differently), 3-4 days will be safe. Do not combine the peel with the roller, like Dr Ajaya says, roll first then peel. However give it a few days in between. All the bestDr Davin LimLaser dermatologistBrisbane, Australia.

Thanks for your query. Glycolic peel can be done 5-7 days after dermaroller. This combination will give you better penetration of the peel hence better results.
